  • An Empty Panel: On The Nightly Show’s Diversity In Comics Discussion

    Arturo
    23 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    By Arturo R. García You would think that a discussion of comics and diversity on The Nightly Show would be a home run. You would be wrong. We hate to call into question fine sites like Remezcla and The Mary Sue. But after watching the episode twice, it’s hard to imagine what show they were watching this past Thursday. Larry Wilmore’s introduction sets the uneven tone for the rest of the episode. While he rightly describes the crux of the discussion — race, gender and pop culture — he refuses to do so without regurgitating the most played-out stereotypes about people…

  • The Grammys Have An Awkward Brush With Social Justice

    9 Feb 2015 | 5:00 am
    By Arturo R. García In the midst of a show that was downright turgid at times, there were glimpses of social relevance during Sunday night’s Grammys. You had Sam Smith openly thank an old boyfriend on national television while celebrating winning four awards. And the award’s outright hypocrisy in honoring abusive cis-males was only exposed further with remarks on domestic violence from President Barack Obama and activist Brooke Axtell: After a year of passionate romance with a handsome, charismatic man, I was stunned when he began to abuse me. I believed he was lashing out…

  • Late Degradation

    UW-Madison Multicultural Student Center
    17 Apr 2015 | 11:30 am
    by MSC Student Life Intern, Lewis In February, Kanye West went on The Breakfast Club and publicly slut-shamed his former partner of almost 2 years, Amber Rose. Amber Rose was a stripper. His current partner and wife, Kim Kardashian, has been considered, by some, to be a porn actress. Kanye West has loved both of these women. And yet somehow Amber Rose is considered the dirty, shameless, jealous ex-partner, bent on destroying the happy family utopia that is the West’s. My point here is that though both women have well documented sexual pasts, only Rose is demonized for her sexuality. This…

    Our roadless forests are under attack! Arch Coal just got the go-ahead to bulldoze for dirty coal in one of our pristine roadless national forest areas. Help us fight back! Arch Coal is at it again. On April 6, the Forest Service announced it was paving the way for the second-largest coal company in the United States to bulldoze across thousands acres of pristine roadless forests in order to mine up to 350 million tons of coal. When final, this deal will allow Arch Coal to reap huge profits while adding hundreds of millions of tons of climate pollution to our atmosphere—all at the…

  • Fight for $15 is Fight for Racial Justice

    Jessie Daniels
    16 Apr 2015 | 5:36 am
    TweetYesterday, people around the U.S. took to the streets to demand $15 an hour wages and a union for fast food workers. This struggle is a fight for racial justice. (Protestors in New York – Image from Democracy Now) A truly multi-racial and multi-ethnic movement, this mobilization of low-wage workers that began with fast-food workers in New York in November 2012. Why is the fight for $15 a fight for racial justice? Some of the reasons that the Black Youth Project 100 lists include: Black folks make up only 11.4% of the national employed population in 2014, but we made up 20.5% of…
  • Racial Justice After Obama

    Jessie Daniels
    14 Apr 2015 | 1:45 pm
    TweetIn response to my post about Hillary Rodham Clinton the other day, several people — including Rebecca Spiff, in comments here — wrote to remind me that President Obama has been pretty terrible on a number of racial justice issues. Fair enough. I thought it was worth taking a look at some of what Obama’s done and what the landscape of racial justice looks like as he leaves office.   From my perspective, I’d chalk up these in the category of “accomplishments” toward racial justice for Obama: Symbolic Barrier Busted. Until Barack Obama was elected…

    Tweet        Today in New York City, Hillary Rodham Clinton announced that she is officially a candidate for the 2016 presidential campaign. While many people are excited about the prospect of the first woman president, I think that a Hillary Clinton presidency will be another in a long series of triumphs for white, corporate feminism and defeats for racial justice.   Clinton’s announcement with the “Getting Started” video on YouTube  features people facing new beginnings — a couple getting ready for a baby, a stay-at-home mom about to…
  • Municipal “Violations” as Racial and Class Injustice

    Dr. Terence Fitzgerald
    9 Apr 2015 | 6:16 pm
    TweetMunicipal violation you say? Such a lofty term, but to many it simply translates to a heedless financial hassle. Many of us have received parking and/or speeding tickets in our past. I myself have racked up my share as a lead-footed and non-paying-metered teen and college student. Boring topic, right? But when one begins to peel the layers back, they encounter a metaphoric fetid smell surrounding an intricate topic of injustice, judicial misappropriation, and economic subjugation concerning the poor. For many with the monetary means and legal resources, a hit to the bank account and…
  • Muslims and Racialization: A Response to Foner

    Saher Selod
    7 Apr 2015 | 3:05 pm
    TweetThis year’s presidential keynote lecture at the Eastern Sociological Society’s annual conference was given by Nancy Foner, Distinguished Professor of Sociology (CUNY). The conference theme was “Crossing Borders,” and Foner took up the question of whether or not Islam in Europe is similar to race in the United States. (Image source) As a scholar who studies the racialization of Muslims in the United States, I was eager to hear what she had to say given her expertise as an immigration scholar. In my work, I argue that in a post-9/11 society we need to examine the…

    The political landscape has changed over the years, as it relates to marijuana.  Across the country marijuana is either being fully legalized, or legalized for medical use.  With that being the case, it's time for a marijuana holiday.  For years the government has waged war on a simple plant, and on the people who enjoyed it.  Millions of lives ruined by incarceration over something that has vast medical benefits.  Attitudes on weed have changed, laws are changing, and it's time for a change in the roster of holidays.  If you agree with the establishment…

    Nelson Mandela wanted a South Africa where all could live together in peace and prosperity.  A group of White supremacists in the country is determined to stand against that ideal; instead wanting a return to the days of apartheid.  The Afrikaner Resistance Movement (ARM) is operating training camps -- replete with racist brainwashing -- in preparation for a race war.  The goal is a separate state for White South Africans.  2,000 people have been through the "Kommando" training program in the last two years. CLICK HERE TO WATCH VIDEO

    15 Apr 2015 | 10:58 am
    The Chicago City Council is proposing a $5.5 million reparations package for victims of torture by former Chicago Police Commander Jon Burge.  Burge has been accused by more than 100 people of using torture.  Victims have described being beaten with phone books, being shocked with cattle prods, and being suffocated with bags until they gave false confessions.  Jon Burge's reign of brutality lasted for nearly two decades, ending in 1991.  He was fired from the police department in 1993.
